Cedarhill Golf and Country Club Application
March 17, 2022 - Message from the president of the Cedarhill Community Association
Hello Cedarhill neighbours
The purpose of this email is to inform you of a recent development that may potentially have a significant impact on our community.
On 7 March 2022, we were informed by our ward councillor, Jan Harder, that the Cedarhill Golf and Country Club has filed an application with the Superior Court of Justice requesting “among other things, a declaration that a portion of the Subdivision Agreement registered in connection with the development of the golf course and surrounding area is invalid. The sections of the Subdivision Agreement which the owner seeks to invalidate relate to the owner’s obligations to operate a golf course on the golf course lands and the City’s rights to step in and operate the golf course or use the golf course lands for other recreational purposes in the event that the owner fails to operate and maintain the golf course.”
The expected date of the hearing is May 26, 2022.
The Board of Directors is currently in the process of obtaining the pertinent documents and other information and advice that will enable us to evaluate the potential impact of this application on our community and to assess our options.
We will be working in conjunction with the Orchard Estates Community Association, as well as Onassa Springs and Lytle Avenue residents, who will also be impacted by this application. We are also reaching out to both Kanata Lakes Golf Course and Stonebridge Golf Course communities who have themselves faced similar issues.
It is of note that the current owner of the Cedarhill Golf and Country Club, among other things, is a real-estate developer.
We will be looking for assistance from those residents with relevant experience or expertise in this type of issue to assist. Given the urgency due to the short timelines, it is the intent of the Board to immediately establish a task force to address this issue in a proactive manner and are looking to residents of Cedarhill to participate in the task force. Once we have the documents in hand we can develop the appropriate strategy.
Our community is fortunate to host extraordinary individuals with a vast array of talent, expertise, and experience in many different areas that could be of immense value in helping to protect the character and nature of the community that we cherish. We will be looking to you for your input and assistance because we cannot do this alone.
As this issue evolves, we will be providing updates at significant intervals and seeking your direction from time to time.
As always, any questions or comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to your support and involvement on this important issue.

Information Regarding Coyotes
Feb 16, 2008 -- There has been some concern recently about coyotes in the area. The City of Ottawa has has provided us with the following information regarding coyotes:
- Coyotes do not pose a threat to humans. They have been coexisting with humans, particularly in agricultural areas where many small rodents and other food live, for many, many years.
- It has been a very difficult winter for coyotes so far -- one of the worst in the last 10-15 years or so -- causing them to move closer to human habitation in search of food and resulting in increased sightings.
- If you have seen a coyote, do not panic or approach the animal.
- Residents should animal proof their property -- contain refuse properly, refrain from leaving pets and pet food outdoors, keep pets under control and supervised, etc. -- to discourage hungry coyotes.
- Trapping and relocation are not viable options, and should certainly not be attempted by the general public for many reasons including safety.
- The attached fact sheets and link below provide more detailed information.
